CD Box Picture Frames

CD Box Picture Frames

Use old CD's to create a picture frame!

What you need

Favorite magazines that are old
3 or more CDs


Paint the inside of the CD cases and let dry.

While the paint is drying cut out pictures from the magazines. After the paint has dried glue the pictures on the inside of the case, so when you close the case you see your pictures. (Don’t close cases until glue has dried.)

Then cut pieces of ribbon to link the CD cases together and glue them on. After they have dried cut more ribbon to hung your CDs with.

Loop the ribbon and glue them on the back. After they dry put three nails in the wall evenly and hang up your creation! Enjoy!


  1. I don’t see any photos of the finished project. I cannot imagine how it looks. Please post a picture. Thanks

  2. Great recycling idea. I think I will put several together in a huge square for a large piece of art. Maybe all sepia or black & white personal photos.Bravo!

  3. I haven’t actually tried this craft yet, but it sounds pretty good! Almost exactly what I was looking for.

What do you think of this project? Let us know!
